Depart DC: @STROGA, @Recoup, & A Strange Case of Uncanny Timing

One of my dearest friends, Kelly, has a friend who writes a pretty cool blog…S.C.O.U.T. (an acronym for A Strange Case of Uncanny Timing).  Essentially, she writes about situations that occur in her life and the lives of those around her that are unexplainable.  For instance, have you ever thought about a friend you haven’t talked to or even thought about in years who inexplicably calls you a day after you thought of him/her?  Well, if you know what I am talking about, you must check out her blog AND keep reading this one, because I just had a S.C.O.U.T. experience myself involving one of my posts from yesterday and STROGA yoga studio!

In my Do/Sip post from yesterday, I unveiled a deal for yoga led by a super capable instructor from STROGA set in the glorious countryside of Rappahanock Cellars!  Sounds decadent doesn’t it?

Before I post anything that is new to me, I do some research to ensure that it is something that I would actually do myself!  I would totally do yoga in a vineyard!!  Right? 

Well, I must be honest with you.  I had not heard of STROGA until yesterday.  Only after my due diligence found that the folks over at STROGA are top notch and offer a unique approach to yoga with an emphasis on strength training, hence the name, did I feel comfortable sharing it with you! 

I digress…back to my S.C.O.U.T. moment.  Today I open up an email from Recoup, which is a fantastic deal site that gives a portion of your purchase to a selected charity of your choice.  You can even increase your charitable donation by decreasing your savings.  Totally up to you.  So I open the Recoup email, and what do I see?  A deal from the very same yoga studio that I had never heard of until yesterday.  You guessed it!  STROGA!  I think it’s a sign that I must either buy the Recoup offer or head down to Rappahanock Cellars for one of their Vinyasa in the Vineyard experiences through Living Social!  Either way I take my S.C.O.U.T. experience full circle AND get some zen mind and body time to boot!  Namaste.

  1. Hey Amalia! Thanks for the shout out! I’m going to re-post your S.C.O.U.T. if you don’t mind! LOVE your blog! Question: What thinks you of rebounding (jumping on a small trampoline) for exercise? I a study that NASA did on it that says its one of the best whole body workouts they found (69% better than jogging!). Low impact, stimulates the lymbic system, great cardio benefit, etc. Ever heard of it? I don’t see anybody around here doing it….

  2. So glad you liked the post and the blog, Guen!! You are more than welcome to post my S.C.O.U.T. on yours:) I have heard of rebounding…sounds like fun to me! You are right. There aren’t any places around here, at least that I know of, that offer that type of class. New business idea perhaps?!?

  3. You read my mind! Thats exactly what I was thinking. I bet the liability insurance, with clients flying off their rebounder and into who knows what, is a killer (!), but I’m going to let that marble roll around a bit and do some more reading. Let me know if you lern anything new! Namaste.

  4. You read my mind! Thats exactly what I thought, although the liability insurance is probably a killer with clients boucing off into oblivion – couldn’t be worse than a regular gym though. I’m going to let that marble roll around a bit and do some more reading! Let me know if you find anything new about it 🙂
